Dreamlike cliffs and beaches. Nestled inside the archaeological area of Capo Colonna, Capo Alice and the protected marine area of Capo Rizzuto, Crotone is one of the most beautiful seaside towns in Italy. A beloved and long-desired destination by divers from all over the world for its submerged archaeological paths, it offers breathtaking scenery to those who decide to visit it. In Cannelle, at a depth of 29 m, it is possible to visit Bengal 1987, better known as “Chico”, a wreck inhabited by groupers, bream, snapper and amberjacks, protected by a statue of the Madonna. With its narrow and winding streets, terraced houses, craft shops, noble buildings and churches, the historic center is the ideal place from which to start visiting this splendid city. Located on a hill close to the sea and surrounded by sixteenth-century walls, the historic center has a unique style, the result of the various foreign dominations that followed one another over the centuries. At one of the ramparts of the sixteenth-century wall area, near the Castle of Charles V, stands the National Archaeological Museum of Crotone, the most important museum in Calabria, a place where the visitor can discover the historical evolution of the ancient Greek city of Kroton. The Garden of Pythagoras is a place where science, art and mathematics converge, giving rise to educational workshops where, through playful interaction, the most complex theorems are learned. One of the absolutely must-do experiences is to walk along the Crotone seafront, a meeting place for all the inhabitants of the city and a must-see place for those who want to indulge in a typical local evening.
